Over the years there have been hundreds of different lure making companies that have gone in and out of business. Many companies were around for decades while some companies were only in business for a year. Older lures were often made of wood and were fitted with glass eyes or painted tack eyes. A lure did not necessarily have to catch fish to be successful, many lures simply caught the imagination of the fisherman and sold well. Below is a very small sampling of lures from the past, we hope you enjoy them.
